Practicus is a community-based organisation that goes beyond traditional networking to nurture relationships with senior leaders and specialists to connect them together. When we set up the community, problem solving was at the very heart of our ambition. It was driven by a constant demand from our strongest relationships to support them with business issues.

Do you share our VALUES?

Every day, in every area, we motivate and reward our people for living these values.

Being aware, listening and understanding others.

Going above and beyond to support others.

Being brave, genuine and authentic. Doing what you said you would.

Belief in what we do, backed up with energy, enthusiasm and resilience.


To provide you leading solutions, Practicus partners with the most intuitive PPM software platform, the UK’s number 1 ranked digital agency and a transition specialist who helps navigate the complexity of change, ambiguity and create sustainable performance cultures.

We partner with Kivue because they offer the most intuitive and transparent project and portfolio performance platform. Our clients tell us that Perform is the most intuitive and user-friendly PPM platform they have ever used, particularly for everyday use, whether they are trained project managers or not.

For over 14 years, Practicus and Hedgehog Lab have worked with a range of businesses on digital transformation. With Practicus as the leading change specialist in the UK and Hedgehog Lab as the number 1 ranked digital product studio globally, it’s a perfect pairing.



We believe in creating opportunities for people to make a positive impact on society. Every year we come together as a company to choose a charity to raise money for. We create a programme of events and get our clients and candidates involved too. On top of that, we are all given two volunteering days (fully paid) each year to support the community initiatives we’re involved in outside of work.
